Chocolate mint scented, without the brown splotching in the center of the leaves, Not enough sun I guess. everyonce in a great while it gets it's brown spots, I guess I don't have enuogh light in the greenhouse. Not sure on that

Kathy Ann, how many stock plants of each veriety do you have? And how many cuttings on average you get from any? and how long before you pot them up? Thank you.

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

There are only two or three that I have 2 stock plants of, Depending on how well they sell and how rare they are. as I have no room for too many more and be able to increase my variety . I've had to order extension hangers to make room for more hanging pots because there is no more room for hubby to put up rods in the greenhouse. And I've used all the rods he had and he won't buy more LOL . Cuttings from each stock plant well, that depends on the plant itself. I can't really give an amount of cuttings that I can ta
ke off the plants, it's hard to say. I had a cinnamon which is hard to find and sells fantastic. So i'm trying to make 2 stock plants of that but I sell them faster than I can keep the cuttings to make another stock plant. my one stock plant of cinnamon is in a l0 in hanging basket I think, and I've cutit back to a nub almost it looks bad LOL I'll have to take a picture of it,

Those cuttings in the picture, I never pot up, their selling stock and stay in the 4 in pot. There are a few times i've taken cuttings off thecuttings and stuck them in the same pot and made a bigger plant for folks, cause they got too tall. Hope I've answered all your questions.

this is Lime scented geranium

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

These are new stock plants

one on the left is mini regal black knight
other one is strawberry scented geranium, 2 in this pot

I will cut on these next spring . But not a whole lot.

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

one on the left is brand new french lace/variegated prince rupert, which are 2 in the pot and came very tiny, but they'll grow, the other is variegated nutmeg which I have now 3 stock plants of that one. their a little harder to root the V nutmeg too much rot. I loose about half of them.

Lots of new stock plants this year, all small, i'm babying them now, hope to be large soon. I 'm thinking of making an order from the geracae .com place, that's spelled wrong, too long for me to spell right, when I get back from vacation, if I can afford it. I might spend all my money while I"m gone.

But I do want to order a couple variegated angels and pansey faced ones from them before I quit for the year.

Now I do take cuttings off the new stock when they get alittle larger and stick the cuttings in the same pot as the new stock to make the stock plant larger for propigation down the road. I do that all the time.

I will cut on strawberry soon to fill the pot more.

I'll have to wait on french lace for a while though LOL it's so cute though.

Lilburn, GA

They are beautiful, I like the leaves on both of them, georgious

NOW WHERE ARE THOSE BROWNIES. LOL

Dallas, TX(Zone 8a)

Oh no. I had said that I was not going to allow myself to get another "hobby". I have the C&S hobby and the AV hobby and I had said that this was it except for my outside plants. Now I want some of these. Do these grow year round if you keep them inside in the winter?

Jesse

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

If you have a nice sunny window, and I mean a nicely lit up window, They love the sunlight when their inside.

Mine don't do well inside the house , not enough light, but they do well in the greenhouse

Dallas, TX(Zone 8a)

Thanks Kathy. One end of my porch is only sunny in the morning. Do you think that would work? Or the other end gets it in the morning but moves around and would shine on it in the afternoon too. Which do you reccomend?

Jesse

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

I'd go with the other end ifyou can, but they should be ok with the first end, My greenhouse gets indirect light, and from the chocolate scented geranium picture above, youcan tell it doesn't get light enough in the GH to turn the leaves brown on the CM geranium . There are suppose to be brown splotches on the leaves. I think, not certain, that it's because it's not light enough in there.

GH is out in the middle of the yard so to speak, no shade what so ever, but the inside of the greenhouse is lined with cheap plastic , the kind you get at Ridout or lowes. and it doens't let the sun in as much as just the outside plastic would. Plants were scorching with the outside plastic, I'm glad for the inside plastic, it brought the temps down in the summer andhelped raise the temps in the winter.

Lilburn, GA

Hmmm... i ate all of them... couldn't resist...t hey were delicious...burp

Kahty Ann, what is the size of your greenhouse?

Dallas, TX(Zone 8a)

Thanks. I will pot them up and put them on the end with the most light. If I notice they look scortched, then I'll move them.

Jesse

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)

16 x 30. and not near big enough, I also grow brugmansias over l00 of them, and mint varieties that Ilike to winter inthe greenhouse so I can sell through the winter. so it gets full, and when I put things on the floor of the GH they don't get enough light and usually die off or rot. I still put things on the floor.

I don't have time now, but I'll gather some pictures of the GH tomorrow and post them, nothing in it much but geraniums now and some brug babies so I guess it would be ok to post them here since their pictures of geraniums LOL

kathy

Judsonia, AR(Zone 7b)
